Mary Kay at Play Summer 2015 New Colors: Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: Product featured was provided for review.
Hey y'all, I've got more summer colors for you today! Mary Kay at Play is releasing some new products and new shade additions to pre-existing ranges. To see some swatches, click.......
Mary Kay at Play Baked Eye Trio ($14 CAD):
The Baked Eye Trio from Mary Kay at Play has three new shades! These baked shadows have a slightly drier formulation. Although the texture feels a tad gritty, the pigmentation of the shadows is pretty decent. The trios come in plastic compact with clear lids.

Mary Kay at Play Shadow & Liner ($15 CAD):
These are some unique duo-ended eye pencils. Featuring a twist-up packaging, these chubby crayons have a rounded shadow crayon on one end and a pointed kajal style liner on the other.
The shadow ends are fairly pigmented shimmers, but the wear is a bit smudgy, best topped with a powder shadow. The liner ends are even more pigmented but again they are not smudge-proof.

Mary Kay at Play Lip & Cheek Stick ($12 CAD):
If you love dual-purpose lip and cheek sticks, then you are going to love these mini twist-up crayon sticks. Available in "Razzleberry", a gorgeous rich berry and "Peach Pop", a pretty coral cream, these sticks are incredibly pigmented with a semi-matte finish. Although pigmented enough to use as lipsticks, these are a bit drying on the lips. The wear on the cheeks is decent as the pigmentation is super intense.

Mary Kay at Play Jelly Lip Gloss:
Two new shades are added to the Jelly Lip Gloss range. "Jammin' Berry" is a sheer dark berry with pink and gold shimmers. "Glow with It" is a clear gloss packed with iridescent pink, silver, and orange shimmers. The formulation is fairly lightweight and non-sticky. Although filled to the brim with glitters, the glosses don't feel very gritty.

Overall:
I am really digging the new Lip & Cheek Sticks as they are so amazingly pigmented. The Baked Eye Trios overall have really great formulation and the color combos are fun for summer. The dual-ended Shadow & Liner crayons are disappointing as I find the formulation to be a bit too smudgy.

Availability:
The new Mary Kay at Play Summer 2015 colors are available May 16th through your local Mary Kay Consultant.
